July is golden fall in Mozambique, sunny and clear, mango flowers are in bud and ready to bloom. When morning fog is fading away at 8 o’clock, the unique view of the hotel is completely under the bright sun, giving a full expression of ‘Landmark Building’ in Beira, Mozambique. Chinese national flag, Mozambican national flag and AFECC flag are fluttering in breeze. We can see a rainbow gate at the entrance as well as welcoming banners and shop flags at the two sides of the road. The flags extend for several kilometers, manifesting AFECC’s confidence and ambition.

 

At 9 o’clock, Presidential motorcade was slowly driving into hotel entrance under guard escort. At the right side of the large flowerbed inside the hotel, Wang Lipei, commercial counselor of Chinese embassy to Mozambique, AFECC CEO Wang Hao and other AFECC management staff, had already lined up in rows waiting for President’s coming.
